President Bush will make another nationally televised speech to the country on Thursday to defend his Iraq policy. The president is still a bit jet-lagged. He just returned from Australia where he made a pilgrimage to the birthplace of Fox News. - Argus Hamilton

General David Petraeus arrived on Capitol Hill Monday for two days of testimony and to give the Armed Services Committee his long-awaited report on Iraq. There's evidence that President Bush heavily edited the report. Every third word is misspelled. - Argus Hamilton
A prominent Republican on Tuesday said he remains deeply skeptical of the U.S. war strategy in Iraq, comparing the long and bloody military campaign to a farmer risking his savings to plant on a flood plain.

Karl Rove Update
congressional investigation into whether former Gov. Don Siegelman was
prosecuted for political reasons advanced Thursday when an Alabama woman at the
heart of the case agreed to be interviewed privately and under oath next week in
Rainsville Jill Simpson will answer questions from two staff members of the House Judiciary Committee next Friday, according to her attorney, Priscilla Duncan.
Simpson's written statement in May that she overheard Alabama Republicans in 2002 discuss White House knowledge of a federal investigation into Siegelman's administration prompted Democrats to question whether the case had been orchestrated by Republicans with political motives...In the statement, Simpson said that Bill Canary, a Republican adviser to Gov. Bob Riley, told Riley's son in a phone call that Siegelman would not be a political problem. Canary's wife is Leura Canary, the U.S. attorney in Montgomery whose staff handled the Siegelman investigation.
"William `Bill' Canary told him not to worry, that he had already gotten it worked out with Karl and Karl had spoken with the Department of Justice and the Department of Justice was already pursuing Don Siegelman," Simpson said in her affidavit. She said the reference was to President Bush's close political, adviser Karl Rove.
